Hi List.
I've mentioned before that I am both just beginning to learn PHP AND I have 
inherited a number of pages that I'm trying to clean up the w3c validation on.

Something that confuses me is how the code on the page is written where in one 
instance, it follows this:

echo "<table border='1'><tr>....

And elsewhere on the page it follows:

echo '<table border="1"><tr>....

In what I've read and from many of the suggestions from this board, the latter 
seems to be the better way to code, generally speaking.

So given that the page has javascript in it, perhaps the reason for the 
previous developer switching between the two was for ease of incorporating 
JS?.... Don't really know... but what I would like to know is it considered 
poor coding switch between the two on a single page or is it perfectly 

2nd question, in the 3 lines below:

$_SESSION['newpage'] = $newpage;
$checkstat = "select field from table where fieldid = $field_id";
$result1 = @mysql_query($checkstat,$connection) or die("Couldn't execute 

If I were to recode in the latter style, should they not look like this:

$_SESSION['newpage'] = $newpage;
$checkstat = 'select field from table where fieldid = "'.$field_id.'"';
$result1 = @mysql_query($checkstat,$connection) or die('Couldn\'t execute 

The focus being here:

('Couldn\'t execute query')

Is this correct?

Thanks for the help.
